Are you sure you want to delete WINDOWS?!

Last night I tried to empty my Recycle Bin in Windows XP, which in itself was a little odd given that the icon said it had items in it, but opening it revealed … nothing.

I decided to try to empty it anyway. Imagine my surprise when I got this confirmation dialog box (below):

Are you sure you want to delete 'WINDOWS'?
Are you sure you want to delete ‘WINDOWS’?

While I’ve been tempted in the past … I clicked No.
